Hi Blog Friends! I know I’ve been M.I.A. lately and haven’t been blogging much. I’ve been doing my freelance writing and have finally gotten a little break from that. Yesterday, I sat in on a session in Sylvan and tomorrow I sign my paperwork and start my first day. I’m really excited about finally being able to work and I think it’s something I could enjoy. I know I won’t be making much because Sylvan only calls you when they need you, but they are short on tutors now. Not to mention, I’ll have my freelance writing to pick up the slack. This way I can earn some extra cash to help Michael and I and I won’t lose my services for my disabilities.
Since I had to go in yesterday for a test run, I got all fancy and got to use one of the other beauty products I got from Target and I’ll finally tell you guys about the cleansing milk I got from Etsy. I’ve also been using a couple of new moisturizers. So, today we will be discussing E.L.F.’s Expert Liquid Eyeliner, the Cleansing Milk from GoodEarthEssentials on Etsy, White Tea Extract Face Cream from LeeAnnsHeavenScents on Etsy, and the Body Shop’s Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream.
E.L.F’s Expert Liquid Eyeliner
I really love E.L.F.’s products. Most of them are really good and their prices are very affordable. I bought this liquid liner because I don’t have the best luck with pencils. Another one of my friends that has motor skill issues tipped me off about it. I tried it and loved it! It was much easier to apply and it was much more dramatic, really making my eyes pop. I just put a little translucent powder over it and it held up longer. Definitely a keeper.
GoodEarthEssential’s White Rose Ultra Gentle Cleansing Milk
I bought this cleanser when I realized how sensitive my skin gets with redness. I’m still using it up with the Vitamin E line from the Body Shop that my fiance bought me for our anniversary. The Vitamin E line is superior to this cleanser. When I used this cleanser on its own, it would calm my face for a little while, but by the end of the day, my face was red again. But maybe it just doesn’t agree with my skin. It does feel great on skin (especially if you leave it in your fridge) and the scent is light and wonderful. If you think it might help you, look it up on Etsy and read on it.
LeeAnnsHeavenScent’s White Tea Extract Moisturizer
This was a much better moisturizer than the one I had been previously using (African Black Soap Brand). It calms my skin well, hydration is great, and the smell is great. I don’t know if this will be my go to night cream yet though. I have some more to try out from the Body Shop. It is in the running though.
the Body Shop’s Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream
When I read the reviews for this moisturizer, some people didn’t like it because of what it actually does. It’s “illuminating” and what it means by that is that it gives a neon shine to your face. I think it is kind of cool, so I use it as a “going out” moisturizer. If you put make up over it, you won’t see the shine, but it does make my foundation more smooth. I’m going to try putting a little over my foundation for a dewy finish. My fiance loves it on me too and it’s great for giving a glow when you’re going out but don’t want to wear foundation. I think it’s a keeper.
